Been going there for 18 years. It's the only restaurant in Northcote that is consistently excellent, food wise. Nothing to look at and floor can be slippery when it rains. Tread carefully and eat well. Also licensed with a wine shop next door!
Loved the chicken fried rice. quality food, that i doubt gets appreciated enough. thank you guys so much :D
Our go to. Grumpy service. Excellent Chinese bbq & other items. Reasonable value
Quiet place with one of the best range of Chinese rice and noodle dishes served with roasted duck, roasted chicken, pork belly and BBQ pork choices. There are dinner dishes served with rice.

A very basic looking Chinese cafe but with a good selection of BBQ meats in the window. The menu is good. It's not massive but lists a variety of dishes not found in most suburban places. Service is basic but efficient. The food itself is flavoursome and nicely cooked. Not a lot of meat in the meat dishes but, then again, they seem to be reasonable cuts. Veggies are fresh and, unlike a lot of places on the Shore, neither enormous near-raw nor soggy messes. The restaurant, itself, isn't the kind of place you would seek out for dining in, but there are a few tables. Still, basically a takeaway. So, it's rather curious that they don't provide bags. Be warned: take your own bag of find yourself juggling a pile of boxes. A couple of other slightly stingy points: no dipping sauce with dumplings (really?!). And I still can't get used to the NZ expectation that you pay for steamed rice, no matter how much you buy. Not expensive to buy but it seems a bit mean. All up, in context of pretty poor suburban Chinese restaurants, this is probably a good choice for takeaway Chinese. But if there any amazing little gems around the area I'd love to know.
